It’s that time of year again when the Parish Council Events Team organises a Christmas Fayre for Ruddington. On Saturday 7th December from 12 noon to 5pm, the village will come to life with Christmas activities taking place in several venues around the village centre.
St Peter’s Rooms will host a number of stalls including jewellery, handmade gifts, cards and tombolas, along with Marvo the Magician and the ever popular Santa’s Grotto. There’ll also be a number of hot food options available
Meanwhile, St Peter’s Church will have lots of retail stalls offering a great variety of gifts, Christmas decorations, cards, wildlife photography and much more.
The High Street will be closed to traffic and have a double marquee with traders including handmade jewellery, crafts and willow products, plus charity stalls run by the Mustard Seed Project and Royal British Legion, and much more. There’ll also be lots of carol singing, performances from local choirs and food and drink on offer, along with the popular fair rides at the top of the High Street.
The day will draw to a close with a visit from Santa, who’ll be driving around the village on his sleigh, and the Christmas tree lights switch-on at St Peter’s Church.
The Christmas Fayre will follow the Ruddington Village Market in the morning, so why not start your day there from 9:30am at The White Horse Inn car park? You can then stay on for the Fayre and enjoy all the village has to offer to get your Christmas celebrations started.
